I only have slivers of details some not certain of but we really want to remember this title.
believe it was set mostly in Africa. in part of the movie a guy ,(maybe british and I think a common actor and usually with a white beard as in this movie I believe) helps the natives by building this compound and either air conditioning or ice or both without electricity. He is hailed for a spell but some other guys it seems also built but use a generator. The guy I am pretty sure calls the area he built on or else moves to "the ivory coast" these details are not the main plot of the movie its just the stuff I remember. I can try adding more if this doesn't get a title. My guess is mid 80's
I have done several searches and cant get anywhere. Thanks for helping

Is it "The Mosquito Coast"? I remember a movie set in what I think was Africa that sounds like that, but I'm not sure. Were there kids in it?

I don't recall kids. at least not that they played a prominent part.
it sounds strange but it sometimes seems like the bit I mentioned is not really the main part of the plot. it just always very much sticks out in my memory
Thanks for the reply I will check that title but does not sound right

thanks again. The first time I looked up the movie I must have got the wrong one. This time I would agree it is at least a very similar movie. Not convinced yet and I am anxious to see it or if I can get the last 20 minutes then I would know if it is the movie I seek.
